Abstract (en)

A sheet discharging apparatus and an image forming apparatus having the sheet discharging apparatus in which a sheet can be discharged without causing any spur trace on the surface of the sheet. Therefore, a sheet P having an image formed thereon is discharged to a sheet discharging section by sheet discharging device 502, 503 and rotary members 504, 505. A plurality of projections 504a, 505a are respectively formed on outer circumferential portions of the rotary members 504, 505. The rotary members 504, 505 are rotated by rotation of the sheet discharging device 502, 503 while the sheet P is pressed by the projections 504a, 505a. When the rotary members 504, 505 are rotated while pressing the sheet P, orientations of the rotary members 504, 505 are changed by an attitude changing device in accordance with a movement of the sheet P so that rotating directions of the rotary members 504, 505 are made coincide with a discharging direction of the sheet P. <IMAGE>
